A spider in me


Saudi Arabia

A spider infested my body and to my body it eats.
Why spider eat mine body while my heart thou beats.
Spider, can't you slit my throat open wide first at least,
To salvage my boat away far to its destined release;
To let me sail at the most darkling night
With my wash against the wash of sea.
You won't take from me the largest bite;
My body is free yet my soul full of might.
Good night little spider I'll leave you here.
Weave, dispread, shed your dread web.
Feed on me, I'll go weep sleeping on my deathbed sear.
